Does this run Plex?

This one has a USB port for external drives too, but it's only USB 2.0

I've got two of the 2-bay 6TB variety, bought within months of each other, and there is a different, clunky, interface to each. That's not to say they don't work for what I want, they do, but the WDMyCloud is a lot more straight forward if all you want is some extra storage that is available to various devices on your network - that is the advantage over a simple HDD. If all you need is basic extra storage for one computer, then an external HDD will be cheaper and straight-forward. If you want network access, and don't need the bells and whistles of RAID back-up, then a single drive NAS like this is what you want. If you do want to have the peace of mind that RAID back-ups might provide, then a multi drive NAS or a server is the way to go. Personally I mirror data on external HDDs and store them at a different location, and use the servers, NASs, cloud drive and multiple HDDs for my day to day data storage. As an aside, the 2-bay versions of this (and the WDMyCloud) have USB ports at the back for daisy chaining additional drives to, so this is a useful way of adding extra storage if you have limited USB ports on your computer - I've got 6TB externals on both of the 2-bay Buffalos and a 3TB portable drive tacked to the WDMyCloud.

cjdshaw

Got one of these. There's no wifi so it has to sit near your router. I use it to back up my various computers to, via Time Machine (Macs) or AOMEI Backupper and FreeFileSync (Windows). Since it's already duplicating the computers, it doesn't need its own redundancy. While the interface certainly isn't slick, it works well once set up. Before people start the criticism, I also do periodic backups to a pocket drive that lives at a friend's house.

Enet

I didn't say that it is pointless, I said that it is "almost" pointless. if you decide to spend a decent amount of cash on one then the least it can do is provide 2 drives mirroring each other so that if one drive dies then you still have the other one. All you need to do then is replace the faulty drive. Otherwise it's just a fancy hard drive. I suppose if you already have dual/3/4 drive NAS in your network and you just want to add some additional disc space but with the extra functionality of a NAS then why not. Otherwise I can't see the point.

im not sure about the j's, i think id look at the plus models for media streaming. iro plex, the free version will allow you to stream and transcode your media, but it wont do any of the backup or syncing, you pay for that functionality with plex pass (i have lifetime)

dragon2611

My experience of bufferlo nas's thus far has been whilst the hardware tends to work the software is rather terrible, it's slow un-inuntative and doesn't seem to get updated very often.

davidbrent

Thanks - so something like this https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/synology-diskstation-ds218j8tb-iw-entry-level-2-bay-8tb2x4tb-seagate-ironwolf-nas-for-home-and-personal-cloud-storage-36747-del-box-3121502 and install the free version of plex would do for my (probably basic) needs I.e. easy backup of photos/playback of home video clips/ripped DVDs/music etc?

bouncy99

look at a synology or qnap, and maybe look at plex on the same for the dvd's to nas

davidbrent

Can anyone recommend a reliable but fairly straightforward NAS to setup? I have never had one before, am complete novice but like the thought of auto backup photos from phone. And is it possible to store DVDS on NAS to stream to smart tv?

Thanks Damian, I can’t open that kellkoo link btw. I think I would prefer a NAS rather than an external USB drive as already have one, I like the idea of auto backup from mobile phones. Any deals you would recommend at the moment? Looking for between 2tb - 4tb.

Yes it would. NAS will allow you to drag and drop your files from any device attached to the network alternatively you could just buy an external drive if it’s just yourself and there’s also Cloud storage. This one here will do local and cloud https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/data-storage/external-hard-drives/wd-my-cloud-home-nas-drive-2-tb-white-10168821-pdt.html?srcid=36&cmpid=comp~Kelkoo&istCompanyId=bec25c7e-cbcd-460d-81d5-a25372d2e3d7&istItemId=xmatxqiiqi&istBid=t&tduid=92c0f1e312b57ac73086f638ada58219

pete21

I've had a couple of these used as network drives and for back ups. Had no trouble with them at all. Can't comment on connecting them to the internet. But they work fine for NAS.

apeman69

Had the 2 bay LS220 for around a year before it failed and toasted one of the HDDs. NAS unit was totally kaput. Managed to save the second drive but not any data. Found it OK in terms of accessing data in the home network and acceptable away from home. The android app was quite limited. Data transfer was very slow over GB ethernet. I've moved away from NAS setups now and just use a networked PC with a sh!t-load of HDDs inside (Dell T20). Much better for my home setup (mobiles, laptop, TV) to access as it's easier to manage and access stuff through Windoze than it was with the quirky Buffalo NAS. IIRC the Buffalo formats HDDs in some different-to-the-norm filesystem which may make it more/unnecessarily difficult to quickly recover data WHEN the NAS fails. I say "WHEN" because my experience of the LS220 NAS is not, on the whole, a positive one. It's got to be 3 or 4 years ago I had the LS220 so, unless they've updated HW/SW, then this will be a relatively old unit. I really can't see much of a use for this now: there are other better all-round options for what is, effectively, an expansion box that houses a HDD or 2. If I were to start again then I wouldn't go down the NAS route at all.

Bargainz999

So what would you recommend? I need a nas with low power usage if possible

My 3TB failed after 7 months when my son nudged it and it dropped from vertical standing position to its side- that was literally it! I know as I was watching it happen:) I have been really gutted to find it does not work after such minor incident... it’s almost like there is no protection for HDD inside- no rubber mounts or anything like that which explains why drive is so loud at times:/ So yeah, if you are prepared to store it’s somewhere very safe where there is no chance any one will have a chance to even touch it then go go it:) I am sure it will last into 2 years and more:) Ordered replacement and got original partially refunded by eBuyer which was huge disappointment on its own. I paid £75 for 3TB - got refunded £63 on the basis its more than 6 months old or other gibberish...not happy even though I could have buy 3TB again for £65 of eBuyer as need two of those for 2 different xboxes... I think I won’t be buying from them anymore as their return policy is a joke! My money will go somewhere else even though it’s a good price and decent drive (disregarding small accident!).

OP .. "I figured it's because it's a powered device as opposed to usb powered.". I remember addressing something similar to this 'situation' of yours on a previous Thread here a few Month's back, lol. Though I can't personally comment upon the OP's Deal that you previously purchased or whatever?, but ... I believe 'firmware' of your Shield device may prevalently be your real issue here? (between your 2 hard drive device's). I doubt the 'issue' of usb or non usb is the prevailing crux here?. Not every third-party 'device' (Smart TV, Android Box, and such like), is capable of more/beyond that of perhaps 1tb hard drive and stuff ... How you were able to get even 1 of those 4tb hard drives to work on it however though, is beyond me?, lol. You managed to sort one out still, so good for you. :-)

porky232

It will be usb 3, probably 5400 RPM. I have a 4TB external and it reads and writes at 155 MB/s, which is quite fast!

Lestat69

Is it going to be 7200rpm and usb3? I would always say, the faster, the better but then again would you notice few seconds difference of load times between 5400 and 7200 in real life (talking games on consoles as original drives installed inside consoles are dead slow). Probably not...

Lestat69

Yeah, same here. It is very noisy at times and I have already applied some sticky felt feet to the bottom and vibrations through case are still loud. I would sort this out in a matter of minutes if I could open the case as suspect its to do with drive mounts inside but don’t want to be losing over 12 months of warranty so just put up with it:/ Knowing how noisy it is, I would have gone with different brand but it was cheap, looks decent and its fast being 7200rpm and usb3!:)

I got a Buffalo terrastation 8gb from Amazon for around £160 a little while back and I seem to remeber you can reinstall fresh drives and firmware by running the update or booting from a usb disk.

With buffalo nas, the nas os is held on the drive meaning you cannot switch out the drive easily. You will need to clone the drive if you wish to do that. If the nas os is corrupt you may not be able to easily access you files. Had an issue with one of these in the office a few years back

Many thanks. I've tried a similar approach and only found a foreign article on opening the case. I'll keep searching!

If it's under warranty then don't touch it or the won't fix it. I just googled it and found a guide about how to pull it apart. It wasn't difficult. The hardest part was reinstalling the OS on a new disk.

How did you open the case without destroying it? My disk controller or ram has died and i want to remove the disk before sending off to buffalo.

Leftfield_2k2

Doesn't matter if they have it tattooed on their ass cheek it doesn't change consumer law. They are 100% legally obligated to accepted DOA returns, the contract of sale is between you and them and consumer law dictates that they must either fully refund or exchange products that arrive faulty. This INCLUDES any postage to return the DOA product, the buyer should not be a PENNY out of pocket. Come on guys, know your consumer rights, don't let these assholes fob you off!

guycorbett1

I’ve recently purchased this with twin 3TB drives and used the RAID1 option to give mirrored storage. I was impressed with the build quality and ease of setup. It may have some average reviews but it works extremely well with a MAC setup.

watson44

It's in their returns policy, supposedly to speed things up and for newbies , if is worth challenging in court is another matter but i believe ebuyer have a similar approach, 6mth warranty on items, after that it's back to the manufacturer to sort stuff out
